retro adidas jacket big shot lifts Masselli Warren to inaugural Victory Sports Summer League title
Princeton >> Christian Burns was so happy to be able to play his summer basketball back at home in Mercer County that he gave the fledgling Victory Sports Academy Pro Am League at the Hun School a shot to remember in its championship game.
The 6 foot 7 Burns banked in a straight away 3 point field goal at the buzzer to give Masselli Warren Law Firm a 67 64 win over CertaPro Painters after the Painters had done all in their power just to even up a game it trailed by 13 points with five minutes left in the fourth quarter.
Even more than his game winner or his game high 20 point effort, the 2003 Hamilton High graduate was thrilled to be able to come home and play in the offseason. He could not say enough about all that Victory Sports Academy basketball director Bryan Caver had done to get top quality summer hoops back in the area.
Caver did a tremendous job with this league, said Burns, whose effort was aided by 10 points from St. Peter University Yvon Raymond. think next year, when more people find out about it, this league is going to blow up and be even bigger.
getting behind us, said Caver,
the former McCorristin High and Seton Hall University star who is trying to help Victory Sports add a women league next summer. if we could just get someone like Under Armour, Adidas or Nike to sponsor us, it would get really big. think he really has something here.
In fact, the 6 foot 8 Robinson had the biggest shots of the game prior to Burns blast. Fouled with 5.7 seconds left while shooting a 3 pointer, Robinson drained three free throws to cap a 17 4 run and knot the score at 64.
Burns, who had been battling inside with Robinson for much of the game, did him one better in the end to cap an enjoyable summer.
